“The illusion of freedom will continue as long 
as it's profitable to continue the illusion.
At the point where the illusion becomes too 
expensive to maintain, they will just take 
down the scenery, they will pull back the 
curtains, they will move the tables and chairs 
out of the way and you will see 
the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Changing our ways of expression

Monitoring words in comments for the BLOG ...........

I always have to laugh at folks trying to put a heavy harness on dignity or not, but it reminds me of Bess Truman.  

Someone asked her if she could train Harry not to use the word 'manure' in his speeches.  Bess replied, "You should have seen how long it took me to train him to use that word!"

Doesn't take much imagination to guess what word Truman must have been using that Bess worked so hard to get him to  use 'manure' instead!!
